Treat yourself to a masterpiece of your very own making. Our watchmakers will guide you through the delicate process of assembling a watch, from its sophisticated mechanical movement to its intricately decorated components. Choose your preferences from a large selection of different components and make your masterpiece one of a kind, complete with a personal engraving at the base of the casing.
Offer this unique experience as a gift to a loved one or business associate. You can also use it as an unforgettable executive team building event in your company. A spectacular gesture nobody will forget.
Our CIMIER workshops in Bienne, located in the heart of the Swiss watchmaking region, offer the perfect setting for your leisurely one day program. The program is best suitable for adults but no prior technical skills or competences are required. Small workshop groups up to 15 max participants ensure each and everyone receives sympathetic, one-to-one, in-depth instructions.
The Academy opens at 9:30 am with coffee and croissants. Participants will be welcomed by our General Manager and our Head Watchmaker will introduce the program. After a good breakfast, participants will choose their preferences from a large choice of high quality components including case, dial, hands and strap – giving each timepiece a unique personal touch.
Once this is done, it’s off to the workshop to begin the assembly process under the guidance and closest supervision of our watchmakers. Before starting the afternoon, to recharge the batteries, a swiss meal is offered.
After the lunch, the participants put on their watchmaker's gown and continue to assemble and finalize their watch. To celebrate the success and effort of the participants, the day closes with an apero and presentation of certificates. Participants leave with the pride that the authentic Swiss Made watch on their wrist is not only unique, but created in Switzerland by themselves.
